Peas provide low-fat, low-calorie protein; 3/4 cup of peas contains about the same amount of protein as a whole egg or a tablespoonful of peanut butter–but less than half a gram of fat.
All varieties of peas contain vitamins A, C and K as well as thiamin, folate and iron.
Selecting Snow Peas Snow peas should be shiny and flat, with very small peas that are barely visible through the pod.
Storing Snow Peas It’s best to use snow peas as soon as possible. Store unwashed peas in a plastic bag with small holes so
that moisture can escape.
